Police: Fla. hospital visitor inhaled marijuana with vaporizer

Posted: Updated:

A Jupiter, Florida man is accused of smoking marijuana in the maternity ward of a hospital.

Stuart Police were dispatched to Martin Memorial Hospital's maternity ward at 10:36 p.m. on Jan. 4, in response to a report about a marijuana smell.

Police say David Bastin, 28, was a visitor at the hospital and had been inhaling marijuana with a vaporizer in one of the rooms on the maternity ward.

"Smoking marijuana in a hospital setting does not provide a free zone for illegal drug use," the Stuart Police Department said in a news release about the alleged incident.

Bastin was arrested and charged with possession of cannabis under 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $1,500.
